COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Origin of name: This beer is named after its unique garnet red-brown color (darker than most dark beers). The color of Černá Hora Granát could lead its consumer to call it a "black beer". Taste: it is characterized by its fullness, sweetness and very dark color. A high proportion of Bavarian, caramel and coloring malt based on a longstanding recipe gives the beer its unmistakable caramel taste and markedly influences its bitterness. It is distinguishable by its good head and vigor. Has won 1st place in category of dark lagers upon competition - "The Golden Cup PIVEX - BEER 1999". Winning competition "Dočesná Žatec" in 1995 -1999 years

armando629 (2383) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 30, 2010
Deep ruby, near black beer with a fine creamy beige head. Aroma of toffee, some roasted grains, caramell and mild dark chocolate. Medium bodied one with caramel and toffe flavor, mild roasted and earthy malt again, some sourish bottom-fermentation character. Mild roasted caramel aftertaste.

Mads Langtved (2245) - Copenhagen K, DENMARK - OCT 29, 2003
This beer is a great mighty brew. It reminds me a bit of Vierzehnheiligen Klosterbock; a malty sweet and perfectly well-balanced beer. Camamelly and bitter at the same time. Amazingly complex! And very cheap!!! 0.5 $

AshtonMcCobb (2119) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 5, 2012
50cl bottle. Pours a chestnut brown with a red hue which makes it look like cherry cola. Nice generous head too. The nose has nettley hops with just a hint of chocolate. The taste has toffee, smokey nuts and biscuity finish. The palate is medium bodied with a rich creamy texture and a fresh and tangy finish. Overall, this is great, like a black lager version of an English bitter.

Grima (2035) - Saarburg, Rhineland-Palatinate, GERMANY - MAY 31, 2011
Pitch black color. Smells malty, very reserved, with hints of sweet coffee. Starts roasted malty, very recent and slightly bitter aftertaste. It has a really strong intense flavor, especially in the middle part is the aftertaste strong coffee-like.

Marduk (2010) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 29, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 3, 2012 0,5l bottle. Dark brown, coca cola color. Small white head. Burnt caramel, dark fruits in aroma. Buttery, smooth, dry coffee, smoky ending. Quite nice beer.

kerenmk (2002) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAR 22, 2014
Bottle shared at a tasting at the Beer and Beyond shop. Brown with beige head. Date honey, date, diacityl and some cheesecake aroma, dry, a little smoky, delicate bitter-roastiness in the mouth. Medium-bodied, dry finish. Surprisingly good.

suprchunk (1955) - Crestview, Florida, USA - APR 10, 2012
Dark brown pour. Slight tan/khaki head that leaves a little lacing around. Malty aroma with some roasty backings. Little bit of a metallic presence noted. Sweet matliness with a nice coffee roasted flavor. The metallic presence shows up again in the aftertaste. Not annoying, but still there. Not a bad beer at all.

TheCametron (1592) - CZECH REPUBLIC - MAY 17, 2012
Bottle. I remember tasting this first in Sternberk,CZ. Pours deep brown with an appealing red when held to the light. Nice beige head also. Light malty aroma. Flavour is light grassy hay hops and a touch of chocolate/caramel. Refreshing and easy drinking. Delicious.
